A Cut Above The Rest – Kevin Rathbun Steak – Atlanta

Kevin Rathbun Steak is a modern chophouse featuring steaks & seafood in a dimly lit converted warehouse with a chic feel.

Who but Kevin Rathbun would have the cojones to build a steakhouse in a former Clorox factory on the overgrown industrial fringe of Inman Park—two full blocks away from his thriving flagship?
While the short drive from Downtown helps draw business travelers, it’s also the finest example of the chef-driven chophouse.

Appetizer upstarts like Korean barbecue pork shoulder and venison tataki consort with vintage favorites like shrimp cocktail and chopped salad. The porterhouse supplied by the famous Allen Brothers of Chicago is the kind of massive dry-aged hunk of meat you’ll have to share with a buddy, and it comes already carved in beauteous mini-steaks.

Prepared entrees (Steak Diane) are serviceable enough, but for maximum gratification, go ahead and order the dry-aged cowboy rib-eye with sides of braised greens and jalapeño creamed corn.

This glossy, big-boy steakhouse on the BeltLine has long attracted expense-account diners and intimate couples alike, both drawn to Kevin Rathbun’s all-American, salt-and-seasoning bravado.

Where else will you find grilled thick-cut bacon, fat squares of pork belly glossed with Sriracha, and wagyu short rib glazed with pineapple listed as appetizers?

But don’t linger among the starters for too long. You’ll need an appetite to tackle the 26-ounce porterhouse, seared in a broiler and funky with that blue cheese tang found in proper dry-aged meats. Standout sides include the creamed spinach, black truffle mac and cheese, and charred jalapeño creamed corn.

If your travels take you to the ATL and you want a great steak experience, you simply must make your way to Kevin Rathbun Steak.
